Pride Month at Filoli and San Mateo
On June 1, ECR made its debut at the first-ever Filoli Pride at the beautiful Filoli Gardens in Woodside, dancing on a shady patio with Kurt Gollhardt calling. Lots of audience participation, including a troop of Brownie Scouts getting their first taste of square dancing.
Two weeks later on June 15, we put on a show at the San Mateo Pride Festival (our seventh appearance) with Rich Reel calling. We started with an on-stage demo tip, then wento out into the audience to encourage festival-goers - and their kids - to join us.
May 8: Congratulations to Our New Members
El Camino Reelers welcomed two new members on Wednesday, May 8 when Mike and Dawn completed the Mainstream program. The graduation ceremony included diplomas, some silly dances, and, of course, cake.
May 4: Star Thru Silicon Valley
The Force was strong in the galaxy as El Camino Reelers celebrated Star Wars Day with caller Gary Monday, aka Princess Mary Wanna Leia!
April 26: Back to Billy DeFrank
El Camino Reelers went back to the Billy DeFrank LGBTQ+ Community Center in San Jose for our April Fun Night. Caller Kurt Gollhardt taught a three-couple not-quite square dance -- and the Hully Gully!
ECR holds no-experience-required Fun Nights on the third Friday of every month (May 17, June 21, July 19) featuring a variety of callers and dance styles to keep things fresh and interesting. Everyone welcome!
